They remind me of the Washington Generals

In the Wisconsin political arena’s version of Wife Swap, Bruce Pfaff, the architect of Scott Walker’s failed 2006 gubernatorial bid, is now working as the campaign director for former Rep. Mark Neumann’s gubernatorial campaign, while the mastermind behind Neumann’s failed 1998 U.S. Senate campaign, R.J. Johnson, is running the show for Scott Walker’s 2010 gubernatorial campaign.

As Heartland Hollar notes, Pfaff and Johnson don’t exactly have a stunning record of producing victories as campaign managers:

By our count, between Johnson and Pfaff, they have worked on at least nine losing campaigns-Scott Walker, John Gard, Paul Bucher in 2006, Tim Michels in 2004, Scott McCallum in 2002, John Gillespie in 2000, Sharon Rose in 1999, Mark Neumann in 1998, and Cate Zeuske in 1994.

Bruce Pfaff and R.J. Johnson have almost as good a record of winning political campaigns as the Washington Generals have against the Harlem Globetrotters.

    1. I lost by 228 votes and came in third for two seats. You might consider that a “big time” loss, but I’m damn proud of where I finished, especially considering I was a first-time candidate and the youngest of all the candidates running.

      Oh, and I may have lost a school board race, but that’s just one race….my losing record isn’t anywhere near as extensive as Bruce Pfaff and R.J. Johnson.

  1. Third place is second loser. Second loser can’t even be first loser.

    Keep making excuses. You suck. Commit suicide.

    1. Awwww….if you’re trying to hurt my feelings, you failed. However, the fact that you need to hurl insults anonymously tells me a lot about what kind of person you are.
